Re: bold 9790, hotspot not on my phone

The Wi-Fi hotspot feature is present in OS 7.1+ and not in 7.0.


What you have to do is install OS 7.1 on your phone.  If you look in these forums, you'll see a thread which explains how to update the OS on your phone.  Just follow the instructions in it and you'll find what you need.


Here's a link to the thread:





Despite it saying it's for the Storm, the information also applies to your phone.  Have a look and feel free to ask questions here if you need any assistance.  Smiley Happy
